Publisher's Summary

Sometimes You Lose, The Sometimes Series, Book 2 (Please note this audiobook does have a cliff hanger.)

It's been three weeks since Haley Rosewood and Devon Carrington won the lottery. Most people would picture their days taking them from one exciting journey to another and their nights filled with champagne and caviar as appetizers to unbridle their passion - but that's not what happens. Instead, Haley is trying to find a new home, a place to start her business, and a way to keep control of her life. Devon is only trying to help her, but it seems that everything he does just pushes Haley's buttons in the wrong way.

When a new contract comes into his security company, it threatens not only the future of his company but Haley and Allison's welfare, as well. Devon must take drastic measures to stop it, and Haley has to trust him, but can she before it's too late? Or will her trust in him be what destroys her in Sometimes You Lose?

Trust Me

Wow, Stacy Eaton did it again with this book. I was immediately pulled into this story with the continuation of Haley and Devon's relationship. I love how they both are looking out for Allison's welfare, and for the focus on Haley's past. She is such a hardworking selfless person, yet keeps things guarded. I was very much surprised by the twist at the end of the book when Devon tells her to Trust Me. I do not like giving away spoilers in my reviews, it is noted that this is a cliffhanger, but its really well done. I thought the narration team of Julie Walters and Gene Branson did a great performance with their duel POV. They are consistent with their character portrayals. I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series, as I want to know what happens next.

Thrills and feels. Need the next one!

What happens after the ‘happily ever after?’ Hayley and Devin are adjusting to their new life together and for Devin, it’s not quite what he had imagined. Despite their love and connection Hayley begins to let her trust issues become a wedge between them. As everyday life begins to set in, Hayley becomes more overwhelmed and leaves Devin struggling to adjust. Just as Hayley begins to find her purchase, her past comes barreling back with her and her daughter in he crossfire and Devin desperately trying to protect them.

I loved getting to follow up with these characters. Life isn’t always tidy and neat. It can be challenging and messy, yet still worth fighting for. Getting to see Devin and Hayley fight for their love was so great and heartfelt. Sometimes You Lose had just enough drama and suspense to keep me firmly glued to my earbuds and plenty of feels to have me completely invested in the characters. And OH MY GOD it ends in a cliffhanger! *dies*

Narration was once again done by Julie Walters and Gene Branson. I really liked that the narration was once again performed by the same duo. I enjoyed their performances and the emotion they both brought t the characters. I’m excited for the next part of Hayley and Devin’s story. 4 Stars.

My Thoughts on Sometimes You Lose

3.5 of 5 stars

Part two of this series picked up where Sometimes You Win left off. After winning the lottery Devon and Haley now have big decisions to make both in their personal and professional lives. They have homes to buy, businesses to grow, and a relationship to sort out. What they don't expect and certainly don't need is the threat from the past that comes out and puts their futures at risk. Hard decisions have to be made, and Devon and Haley's relationship may not survive those choices.

I feel like once again Stacy Eaton did a good job giving me a book that held my interest and kept me guessing what would come next. I continued to be impressed with what a good guy Devon was and sometimes just amazed at what he was willing to put up with for the woman who held his heart. There were a few moments with Haley where I kind of wanted to scream at her through the kindle as I listened. She definitely still lets her past dictate her actions and choices in her present and it has a huge impact on everyone around her.

The ending though I definitely didn't expect. It left me hanging and now I really want to know how it all ends.

Once again both narrators did a good job. They gave a unique sound to each character and maintained it throughout so you always knew which character was speaking.

losing it

When you come into money expect the roaches to come out of the woodwork such as deadbeat dads who accuse you of kidnapping. Devon will have a lot of explaining to do to Hailey when her ex shows up and she gets arrested. Hailey will have to trust Devon to make it right or want nothing to do with him. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.

Do you trust me?

I have to say I got sick of Devon asking Haley "Do you trust me?", in my opinion, if you have to ask... besides actions speak louder than words.

Poor Devon, all he wants is a loving relationship with Haley and he comes up against roadblock after roadblock. Things are far from smooth from Haley's side either, but I feel like Devon got the short end of the stick.

If you enjoyed book one you'll love this one, it's even better than the first (not: this series should to be read in order), in this book there's more character development and we get to see what drives the characters to act they way they do. It's interesting to see Haley's history. Allison is coming into her own in this book as well, she's less of a child and is making her opinion known.

The dual narration works really well with each narrator doing one of the POV's. The character voices are managed well by the narrators and the delivery has a good pace and tone.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Love this series!

"Do you trust me?" Haley and Devon are adjusting to their new life. Unfortunately, it's not how Devon pictured it. Haley is having some major trust issues and cannot deal with Devon wanting to help her out. With a new business to build, a house to buy and a daughter to raise, Haley is overwhelmed, and feels like Devon just wants to control her life...and is the money attractive to him? Her insecurities overtake her, but once she finds her footing, and knows what she wants, her past comes to haunt her. Devon in protective mode will do anything to keep Haley and Allison safe, but will his plan to keep her safe backfire? A little suspense, a lot of love and drama and Eaton has a winning combination for this couple. Only it doesn't end! A slight cliffhanger has left me wanting more!

Julie Walters and Gene Branson continue the narration of the series. I love consistency with characters and we have it with these two! They are Haley and Devon and the dual POV works well with their styles. Looking forward to the next one!

Haley & Devon part 2

This is dual narration between Haley and Devon. I adore Devon and Allison. Haley is overemotional, cannot make up her mind, and holds Devon to a changing standard. She makes promises she does not keep 30 minutes later.

suspense

at first I thought this book was going to drive me crazy with hailey always over thinking things and reading the wrong things into situations. just when you think things are going to be okay, bam. something really big happens and the book ends. it makes you wanting the next one. I can't wait to find out what happens next. I love the suspense.

Can you say ‘Freddy’s a douchebag?

OMGEE!!! This book! Devon and Haley each won 1/2 of the lottery a few weeks ago and, for struggling single mom, Haley, the adjustment from rags to riches will take some time. Devon moves Haley and her daughter into his house to protect them from the drama that surrounds lottery winners. Devon wants a relationship with Haley but will he be able to get past her wall of distrust? When someone from Haley’s past becomes a threat, will Haley trust Devon to keep her and Allison safe or will she, once again, turn on the man who has her best interests at heart?
I love Devon but really wanted to shake Haley every time she started to accuse Devon of controlling her!! For me, the sign of a good book is when I start yelling at the characters...so this deserves 10 stars! I need the last book so my heartbeat can return to normal.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review
